Growing up in a military family I traveled a lot. I developed a sense of adventure that has continued into my professional life as a chef. I am the co-founder and co-chef at Kraken Congee.
Larb (pronounced lawb) is a highly addictive dish from Northern Thailand, and is one of my favorites. I've cooked ground chicken with lime juice and fish sauce on moderate heat. And then mixed it with red onion, chilis and fresh mint. Enjoy it as a wrap in butter lettuce topped with toasted rice powder, which adds a nice crunch. I serve this salad with a side of rice as well.
